Trump accuses China of election influence

A day after imposing additional tariffs on China, President Trump, without offering any evidence, laid into nation in a Tuesday tweet for attempting to influence the U.S. election.
“China has openly stated that they are actively trying to impact and change our election by attacking our farmers, ranchers and industrial workers because of their loyalty to me,” Trump tweeted.

The president has been engaged in a trade war with China for the last few months - earlier rounds of tariffs were met with the same by China. 
This is not the first time the president has put China in the crosshairs for allegedly mucking around in U.S. affairs. 
In August he accused China of hacking Hillary Clinton’s emails, but again offered no corroborating evidence.
“Hillary Clinton’s Emails, many of which are Classified Information, got hacked by China,” he tweeted then.
